Back to Bonneville
As you know, the QCrew is no stranger to Land Speed Record Racing (Quicksilver Motorcycle Land Speed Record). After a couple years of bad conditions on the salt at Bonneville it is a thrill to see new records being set again. Danny Thompson’s story of setting a new piston powered record of over 400 miles per hour last week (August 14, 2016) is particularly inspiring because he did it to fulfill a dream of his father, Mickey, in his original racer from 40 year ago.
Why is QCrew so enthralled with Land Speed Record racing? Because WOT is where we live – our lubrication products are engineered for engines that run in an environment that requires full torque 100% of the time. There is no coasting in high performance boating where the water on the hull is relentlessly trying to slow the vessel down, unlike traditional land racing where there are throttle lifts during braking into a turn and modulation in traffic and during shifts. Their torque curve is our duty cycle! Engineered for the toughest conditions on the planet. Quicksilver Lubricants.
